Bomb GDWO

Post by Digsu » Sat Jun 08, 2019 11:23 am

Why do we not have a bomb topic for GDWO, I must rectify this at once :P4:

Kurotora is apparently carrying Tonov with head spots. Or maybe it's some sort of Tonov/Maru fusion.

Image

Two Orions. We're all doomed. (the one on the left is supposed to be Sirius)

Image

Rigel with a Kai tail.

This... just looks incredibly rushed. The top panel has no background and the dogs look kind of rough, and the bottom right panel is quite obviously just a cropped version of the top panel.

I'm really surprised this one wasn't corrected in the manga book. This isn't just bad art, its a desperate last resort to finish off some panels :derpgin:

I vaguely remember us making fun of that panel when it first came out on the old board. Truly horrible :surprisegin:

I realize this isn't really a bomb, but it's so incredibly stupid that it's basically got the same energy.

After the battle with Masashige, Kousetsu's neck gets twisted, leaving him unable to fight and his brothers leave him behind to recuperate. Later, Unsai snaps it back in place for him and he goes back to his brothers, where he tells them that he got into a fight and his neck just magically snapped back into place during the battle. And that leads to this:

Image

Just in case the reader's already forgotten what actually happened, after Kousetsu tells his made up version of the events there's a bit of text outright saying "Kousetsu lied!!" ("ε’¬εˆ‡γ―ε˜˜γ‚’γ€γ„γŸ!"/"Kousetsu wa uso wo tsuita!!") on the side of the panel. Unsai fixes his neck in chapter 145 and he reunites with his brothers in chapter 151, which isn't that massive a gap, and it only gets sillier with the volume releases since the chapters were both included in the same volume (19). So basically it's very unsubtly reminding the reader of something that happened earlier in the same volume.

It arguably looks even more ridiculous in the Finnish translation, where it had to be slapped right in the middle of the panel instead of being neatly tucked on the side (and that's without getting into the fact that, since obviously the series was translated in volumes rather than coming out weekly like the original Japanese release, there's absolutely no point in this disclaimer in the Finnish version).

Image

I know we like to accuse the narrator of Ginga being too hand-holdy, but let's just be thankful it's usually not this hand-holdy.

To be totally fair since Ginga has so many continuity errors its very easy to assume that Yoshi/the editors just forgot without that bit of text even though its in the same volume. :derpgin: (Especially since theres not a lot of clues to indicate tone with the facial expressions the characters are drawn in)
